It would be really awesome to finally meet Daniel Radcliffe! It has always been said that he is very nice, and I want to see it by myself! It would be surreal to see him in person!

Although his attendance has not yet been confirmed at the New York premiere, I would be most excited to see and, if possible, meet Warwick Davis. Not only does he portray my favorite character in the series, Professor Filius Flitwick, he is also a superb actor (as seen by his versatility with his three transformations in the films [Flitwick 1, choir director/Flitwick 2, and Griphook]) and a devout Harry Potter fan. Few other actors in the Harry Potter series have shown such devotion to the Harry Potter franchise. He is genuinely enthralled by the series and cherishes his involvement with the films. He does not see acting in the Harry Potter films as a mere job: he is thrilled to be part of such an amazing series, and it is reflected in his personality. As such, it would be incredibly exciting for me to personally see this wonderful actor, devoted Harry Potter fan, and well-rounded man: Warwick Davis.

I’m most excited to see Emma Watson! I think she is an inspiration and a role model to young women that like her character Hermione girls can be smart, hard working, beautiful and still be nice. And she has great fashion sense, so I’d love to see what she wears!

I would probably be most excited to see Helena Bonham Carter. I am a huge fan of her and especially her portrayal of Bellatrix!

I’d really like to meet Tom Felton. He does some great acting because I feel that although his character is evil, people believe him to be a bad guy too. That could be furthest from the truth though because from listening to interviews and sections of extras in the movies I’ve seen he can be a funny guy and I’d be super excited to meet and talk with him

Well I would Love to meet Alan Rickman I mean he is a fantastic actor and he portrade Severus Snape perfectly. He has forever changed the way I say obviously :). The character he plays in the whole series in my opinion is utterly amazing. His character is my favorite because Severus still has this love for a girl he has lost which is very sweet, He is also extremly brave and (in though hidden) a great role model and hero. Just meeting the actor who has again portraded him perfectly would be the greatest thing EVER!

Hi LeakyCaludron! I want to see Alan Rickman on the red carpet. Besides the fact that he’s an extraordinary actor, and he’s played Severus Snape beautifully. Severus Snape is one of my favorite characters in the series, that mystery around him about his true loyalties regarding Dumbledore and Voldemort. I must be honest though, I hated him in the beginning, but his trajectory in the last book is so beautiful and sad. His end was so sad to me, dying that way and telling Harry to take his memories, is just heartbreaking. And so, for me, he was in a way redeemed after all of that whole situation occurred. I love this series, I always will. I’m actually re-reading Deathly Hallows as we speak. Thank you for this opportunity… :)

I am most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe at the red carpet. It’s been my life-long dream to meet him and I’d be the happiest person in the world. He’s a role model to me. He is an inspiring person to me. He started out as just a normal child and now he’s one of the most famous people in the world. I greatly hope that I will actually get to meet him. Thanks leaky for this opportunity.

If I were to be given this amazing, once in a lifetime chance, to see any one actor from the Harry Potter movies, I would be excited to meet any one of them. From Alan Rickman to Zoë Wanamaker, each and every one of these actors brings something new and unique to the movie series. This is one of the reasons I think the series has done so well. Each and every person truly loves working on this project and gives it their all. Every person is an irreplaceable part of these movies, and it would not be the same with out them. For this reason I wouldn’t mind meeting any one of them on the red carpet. They have all, in their own way, changed my life. If I absolutely had to pick just one of them to meet on the Red Carpet it would have be Daniel Radcliffe. Without him the movies would not haven been as much of a success as they are. In order to make a great movie you need to have the right person playing the lead role. If the main character isn’t cast right, no matter how good the supporting cast is, they can not make up for a miscast main character.

Another reason why I would like to meet Daniel Radcliffe on the Red Carpet is because Harry Potter changed my life and I would like to get the chance to thank Dan, Emma, Rupert, J.K. Rowling and the others in person. I know I could just write a letter to them but it is very difficult to convey my feelings in a letter. When I was little I didn’t like to read because I have dyslexia, a learning disability that made it hard for me to read and makes it hard for me to spell and do math. I wasn’t doing really well in school because of my disability. I felt stupid and alone, but Harry Potter changed all of that. I loved the Harry Potter books so much, I began to read them myself rather then have my mom read them to me because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. Because of the Harry Potter series, I went from not reading at all to by 8th grade, reading at college level. It is also partly because of Harry Potter that I met some of my closest friends. Harry Potter has literally changed my life for the better, and I would love the chance to personally thank the people who made all this possible.

OMG i would be the happies person every if I got to meet Dan, he has so much talent and so much ambition! I’d love to ask how Broadway is going, etc. It’d be a dream come true!

I’d be most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe. Since he’s the main actor in the series, and because he’s done so much else other than Harry Potter, I just think it would be magical to see him.
